Sponsorship Opportunities

TalkingCruise has several sponsorship programs available to match your promotional needs, frequency and budget. The programs below can be customized to include a set of features that work best for you.

As we are focused on delivering the highest quality original content exclusively about cruising and we respect the same interest of our subscribers, we will only allow sponsorship by organizations that offer products and services directly related to the cruise industry.

Why promote your company on YouTube?

You may have never thought about advertising or promoting your company or brand on YouTube, but we bet you have watched videos on YouTube at some point recently and so have millions of others. In fact, YouTube gets over 60 million visitors per day.

Compared to broadcast television, YouTube reaches more people (18-49) and is much more cost effective, plus you have better ability to target your message to what your consumers are watching.

Video, especially on mobile platforms, is quickly becoming the most preferred method for entertainment, social expression and research of products and services. Recent reports have found that over 72% of car purchasers and 62% of smartphone purchasers indicated that YouTube had an influence on their decision to by one product over another.

YouTube offers the ability to customize the targeting of your message by aligning your company with a channel that creates videos that are within your market niche.
